I was finally able to take pictures of Ocotillo Housing. I’m not sure what ranks are assigned to the some of the areas – mostly in the officer side. Hopefully though this will help those of you that might be living over there.
Ocotillo is the only housing that officer’s live in. A friend of mine that lives over there says it takes her 7 minutes to get to the commissary. There is a gate there so it’s quick to get out in town. There is also a small MCX there and a lot of playgrounds.
(Thank you to Samantha for taking the pictures while I drove slowly around the neighborhood.)
This first area is on the way to the golf course and the Ocotillo Community Center/pool. It’s a small area for NCO’s. The housing is very similar to some of the housing in Adobe Flats (also for NCO’s). However these streets were wider and just seemed more private and quieter. I talked to a spouse living here and she said they have been so pleased with it and while they wanted Adobe Flats at first they are thrilled that they ended up over here.
The Ocotillo housing office/community center. The pool is in the rear. And behind this area is where the base golf course is.
This is part of the officer housing. A friend whose husband is an O-4 lives in one of these duplexes and someone else I know that is O-5 lives in the single units. I don’t know for sure if that is how it is broken up though.
As you can see some of the duplexes appear smaller than others but I couldn’t tell if it made a difference in area.
The officer housing has backyards that you can fence if you’d like.
The following housing is from a street that I know is E-6 to E-9. There is another longer street that has the same type of housing that I thought was all E-6 to E-9 until I met an O-2 that lived in them also. So I’m not sure about those.
Ocotillo in general seems like a really nice area to live in. We were driving through around 10 in the morning and there were some children at the playgrounds, people out walking, and in general seemed real quiet.
The General’s house is also over here as well as the Command circle..houses.. I didn’t drive down that road. 🙂
Hope this helps those of you that will be living in Ocotillo Housing.
